Merry Christmas!

This is a Christmas of new traditions for our little family. We are departing from the usual Christmas dinner with my family and opting for a less stressful, less "DRAMA" -filled holiday that includes activities we have all opted to do, including:
  • Ice skating on Christmas Eve (we did that today and it was GREAT!)
  • Dinner with Ian's family on Christmas Eve
  • Uncle Ryan sleeping over and opening presents with us
  • Going to the movies (we're thinking Avatar) after presents and breakfast
  • A small Christmas dinner that includes the following:
    • Turkey BREAST (I brined it... yummy!)
    • Mashed Potatoes (with cream cheese)
    • Broccolini with a smoked gouda cheese sauce
    • Kraft dinner (Phoenix's choice!!!)
    • Apple Crisp and Ice Cream for dessert
  •  Go to Uncle Marks after dinner for some good hangin' out
And that's it for this year! I am so excited to not have the stress of my family weigh heavily on my heart. It's time I make my holidays the best they can be, and I truly think this will be the best Christmas yet!

Thankyou dear blog readers for a wonderful year. I have really enjoyed this past year of creating and blogging about the many changes in my life this past year. On New Years I am preparing a post of my top 10 favourite cards from 2009.. If there are any particular cards that were your favourite I would love to hear from you! I would love to send one contributor an RAK (I don't send enough happy mail...) for your trouble..

So Merry Christmas to you all. I wish you all a happy, peaceful, and FUN Christmas day!
